Alberta Spruce Spider Mites
Move to Cypress or Evergreens?

Q: If I plant a Alberta spruce that has spider mites on it, and can't see them until the damage. Can those same spider mites get on my other evergreen trees? ie. Cedar, and/ or Leyland cypress trees?

A: Yes, the spider mites could travel from your dwarf Alberta spruce to nearby evergreens, including your Leyland cypresses.

If you decide to plant the Alberta spruces, I recommend you initiate a spider mite preventative control program for ALL the susceptible evergreens in the yard, or at least the ones near the spruces.

If the spider mite population gets out of hand, you'll have a difficult time regaining control.
